Notts County ban Hungary from facebook


 
 
 

According to the BBC, the whole of Hungary has been blocked from Notts County football club's Facebook page after it was deluged with comments concerning a new player.

The posts were prompted by the signing of Hungarian striker Balint Bajner, 24, from Ipswich Town, on Tuesday.

In August, Ipswich's Facebook page was swamped by comments saying "No Bajner, no party!" after he was dropped.

Notts County said the posts were taken in fun but had now had to take "drastic" action to control them.

Jamie Dixon, the Club's head of media, said the club's Facebook page had had an "unpre­ced­ented" amount of traffic on Tuesday, with 1,700 new likes in two days.

"Anything we posted got a good number of Balint Bajner posts within a few minutes and it just grew and grew," he said.

"It was all taken in good fun but then we did have to appreciate that it was blurring the waters for everyone else on the page."
